Subject: A beautifully produced 120-year old kids' book.
This beautifully produced kids' book is a sheer delight.

'Christmas Roses' is of excellent quality, it is well preserved and its artwork shows little or no signs of faded colors after the passage of more than a century. It's a good insight into just how good high quality production printing of 120 years ago could actually be.

To get a better appreciation of the actual quality I'd suggest the reader downloads and expands the JPEG 2000 file, christmasroses00lawsiala_jp2.zip. Therein, each page is presented as a separate high quality JPEG 2000 (.jp2) file.

(BTW, printing inks of the time often consisted of intensely colored metallic-based pigments. Whilst very stable over time, many are now considered too toxic to use and thus would not be permitted today.)

Subject: Yes
Beautifully illustrated, although the poems are somewhat sappy, but then, this is today.

Beautifully illustrated, too bad the magnify feature of Flipbook does not work.
